the city. he offered understanding of cities like chicago. president obama recognized this particular kind of gun violence is about more than just weapons used to commit the crimes. it's also about poverty, a lack of access to economic opportunity for all families. the president proposed a policy solution that goes beyond regulating guns to embrace a role for the government in helping lift struggling families out of poverty. we are singing the same tune until the record scratched when he said this. >> we should do more to promote marriage. and encourage fatherhood. we have single mothers that are heroic with what they are doing. we are so proud of them. at the same time, i wish i had a father who was around and involved. somehow, in the middle of a speech on gun violence and poverty, we were smack in the middle of the president's daddy issues. what i heard president obama's father detour, i thought those of you on twitter know what i thought. this is what i tweeted. sigh, the fatherhood thing is distressing for me. i know you don't mean to say single moms cause gun violence
